    I have a Windows service that is sending encrypted HTTP traffic.  I have set up Fiddler to decrypt  HTTPS traffic. I have logged in as the user whom this service is set to log in as. Though the service is creating traffic, I'm getting no traffic in Fiddler.

    This seems to be happening on Windows 2016 servers. I have a Windows 2008 server on which the same service is running and I'm getting traffic just fine.  Does anyone know what might be the issue?

    Hi,

    Does Fiddler capture any traffic (browser, other applications, etc.)?

    Yes it does. It will capture traffic from a browser if I have one running on it.

    Hello,

    It's possible that the service on the newer system is using WinHTTP instead of WinINET (this is what Fiddler is attached as proxy by default). You can find instructions how to set the WinHTTP proxy settings in this forum reply. Does this fix it?
